The serial production of the new Skoda Kamiq SUV began at the main plant in Mladá Boleslav. Alongside the latest member of the Skoda model range, the OCTAVIA, FABIA, SCALA and KAROQ are also produced there.
Dr Michael Oeljeklaus, Skoda AUTO Board Member for Production and Logistics, said, “For us, the start of production for a new Skoda model is always a special time. Over the past few months, we have made all of the provisions in production and logistics to successfully launch the Skoda KAMIQ in the city SUV segment. We are convinced that – in typical Skoda style – the KAMIQ too will impress our customers with its excellent quality and many practical features.”
Skoda has invested approximately 100 million euros in the manufacturing of the KAMIQ in Mladá Boleslav. The production line for the MQB27 platform has been adapted; new press tools have also been produced. In the paint shop, body shop and final assembly, not only were fundamental changes made, but details were also modified to facilitate the assembly of the new split headlights with LED technology, for example. 400 new KAMIQs leave the Mladá Boleslav plant each day.
The KAMIQ is based on Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform and wows with state-of-the-art assistance and infotainment systems, an emotive design and a wealth of Simply Clever features. Its generous amount of space makes it the perfect companion for families and lifestyle-oriented customers in equal measure.
At 4,241 mm long, the Skoda KAMIQ offers a copious amount of space for all passengers and luggage. Thanks to its modern assistance systems, a selection of efficient, economical engines and the latest connectivity solutions, it is perfectly tailored to suit the requirements of a younger, urban target group. Offering the new city SUV exclusively with front-wheel drive, Skoda caters to the desires of customers in this vehicle segment in terms of drive too.
